This contribution introduces the Handbook of Parliamentary Studies. It first discusses the notion of ‘parliamentary studies’ before outlining the rationales for this editorial project and presenting its main findings, such as commonalities across a variety of disciplinary approaches, a recent renewed interest in legislatures’ rules and the resiliency of parliaments as institutions. After having presented the topic addressed by each contribution, the chapter emphasises the historical as well as conceptual affinities between parliamentarianism and encyclopaedism – an affinity that calls into question the current status of each apparatus.

What is the distinctive contribution of political science to the study of legislative institutions? And what has the study of such entities brought to political research? This paper argues that the answer to these questions is twofold. First, students of legislatures have amply demonstrated that legislative institutions do matter for the daily lives of modern societies – a statement that, as established in a first section, was far from evident in classical studies of political regimes, systems or elites. Second, we argue that legislative studies have actively contributed to our understanding of institutional change and strategic behaviour, arguably two of the most crucial areas of inquiry in political science.

This contribution proposes to map the concepts of parliament and parliamentarianism by providing definitions of the words associated with them, by shaping a model for a given organisation’s parliamentary nature and by developing analytical aspects of the concept of parliamentarianism. Specifically, it argues that: 1. modern legislatures are characterised by the conjunction of fourteen distinct organisational features; 2. parliamentarianism is marked by a willingness to monopolise a remarkable diversity of political tasks through the original conjunction of in situ performances and legal instruments; 3. parliamentary assemblies possess an intrinsically democratic quality. Despite democrats’ numerous disillusionments relating to legislatures, the contribution supports the view that, be it from a liberal, participatory or deliberative perspective, legislatures are an essential component in assessing the democratic nature of a given political regime.

This comprehensive Handbook takes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of parliaments, offering novel insights into the key aspects of legislatures, legislative institutions and legislative politics. Connecting rich and diverse fields of inquiry, it illuminates how the study of parliaments has shaped a wider understanding surrounding politics and society over the past decades. Through 26 thematic chapters, expert contributors analyse parliamentary institutions from various disciplinary perspectives (history, law, political science, political economy, sociology and anthropology). A wide range of approaches is covered, including the sociological study of members of parliaments, gender studies and the mathematical conceptualisation of legislatures. Exploring the history of parliament, the concepts and theories of parliamentarism, constitutional law, and the linkages between parliaments and the administrative state or with populism, this incisive Handbook provides a panoramic view of this institution. Chapters also map the main trends, patterns of developments and controversies related to parliaments, assessing the strengths and weaknesses of current research and identifying a range of promising avenues for further study. Drawing together international and comparative approaches, the Handbook of Parliamentary Studies will be a critical resource for academics and students of parliamentary politics, political science, political economy, public law and political history. It also provides a vital foundation for researchers of legislative and political institutions.

La réduction d’un tiers du nombre de membres des trois assemblées constitutionnelles (Assemblée nationale, Sénat et Conseil économique, social et environnemental), promise par le président Emmanuel Macron, lors de son discours du 3 juillet 2017 devant le Congrès à Versailles, comporte des risques en termes de représentation des territoires.

The multiple crises that the EU has faced over the last decade could lead observers to expect an increase in conflicts within its legislative process and, eventually, a shift from a consensual mode to a majoritarian and politicized mode. The dataset The EU Legislative Output 1996–2019 indicates that this has occurred only to a moderate extent. To explore this enduring consensus, we analyse quantitative and qualitative data on law making within the Council of the EU and the European Parliament and proceed to a systematic diachronic comparison. We argue that, as before the crisis, consensus remains a norm and results from cooperation based strategies. Furthermore, new factors, such as the extension of the ordinary legislative procedure, a pro-EU alliance within the European Parliament and the smaller number of legislative proposals, foster consensus.
